Cheerful, Springy "Stampin up" Card

My "Stampin Up" life has been neglected lately.  I decided this weekend I was going to make AT LEAST one card.  And -- I found time to put one together Sunday afternoon.  I have been wanting to make some baker's twine suckers since I first saw one on pinterest.  They were a little lot more time consuming than I thought they would be.. but I am happy with the way they turned out.  Here's a picture and a quick tutorial on how I made them.  Hope you enjoy!

You will need  three different colors of baker's twine.  Next, cut out three 2 3/4 inch circles.  (I used my cricut to cut mine).
Apply glue generously to the entire circle.  Start in the center and just start pressing the twine down in a circular motion till you cover entire circle.  I had to keep applying the glue as I went because it dries so fast.   Finally, I  just stamped out a mason jar from the "Stampin' up"  Perfectly Preserved set.  I cut a slit in the top and bottom of the mason jar mouth to slide the "sucker sticks' into.  I was really happy with the way it turned out!  

Thanks for looking and having a great day!

  4. Oh, this is so cute! I love the little lollipops! Does the glue stick really hold it well enough? I've had some of my projects come apart using glue sticks. Maybe I'm using the wrong ones.
    be a sweetie,
